Obama camp tips hand on debate, hints president will attack Romney on Bain
foxnews ^ | 10/14/12 | Ed Henry

Posted on 10/14/2012 8:17:56 PM PDT by cdchik123

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – As President Obama began to hunker down at a plush resort here for three full days of debate prep, his campaign team signaled the incumbent may steal a page from Vice President Joe Biden and show a more aggressive tone in Tuesday's second face-to-face showdown with Republican Mitt Romney.

"Gov. Romney has been making pitches all of his life and he knows how to say what people want to hear whether that was during his time at Bain or during the dozens of town halls he did during the primary," Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday. "His running mate also left him vulnerable on a number of issues -- admitting there was a $5 trillion tax cut, after he denied it, but again failing to explain how they would pay for it, leaving women worried about their ability to make choices about their own health care and failing to articulate their plan for winding down our presence in Afghanistan."

It's significant that Psaki previewed the president's next clash with Romney with an immediate mention of his time at Bain, a word Obama never mentioned during the first presidential debate, in Denver.

Senior campaign adviser David Axelrod said on "Fox News Sunday" that Obama is making “adjustments” before the debate and plans to be more aggressive.

Axelrod also referred to Romney's investment capital career before entering politics.

“We expect Governor Romney will have a great debate too," he said. "He is a great salesman. That is what he did as a professional, he is very good at it.”

Later Sunday, Psaki noted women's health-care issues were left out of the first debate, which appeared to suggest Obama would raise the topic this time.

Romney could ask why a tweet came from the state dept in bengazi asserting apology for an offensive video - but there was no video.

Why was such a tweet sent?

See if Romney was smart, he would take a page from Ronald Reagan and simply look into the camera and say to the American People, “My opponent is simply trying to come off in this debate now as something he has not been for the last 4 years and that is a leader!”

I’ll wager that the bamster will come off as a snide, arrogant, condescending pr!ck which is exactly what he is. This won’t help his “likeability” with normal Americans. Of course, the dhimmocritters will love it.

Romney will counter Bain with the success and employment numbers of Staples and Home Depot, etc. Obama will lose the argument.

The Bain issue did not work in the TV ads and now if obama brings them up, Romney will have an opportunity to fully explain the purpose of Bain and venture capitol as well as answer bogus charges.

Yes. My guess is that Obama's "handlers" have told him how useless and meek he looked during the first debate.

I bet that Obama comes out swinging, but all he's going to connect with is air.

It will make him look petty and ridiculous.

And nobody will buy it, so long as Mitt stays on message. Let Obama look like the unpleasant, incompetent fool he REALLY is.

I hope Mitt's own handlers have prepped him well.If so, this could be the K.O.

Huckabee just said he takes umbrage at hte fact that the msm and htose surrounding obama are willing to do ANYTHING regardless of how dispicable or how dishonest it is in order to protect obama

Bam! Mitt NEEDS to immediately confront obama abotu hte FACT that had it been a republican president i nthe white house who said that they ‘were unaweare of the need for more security in Libya’ that the left woudl be screamign to have that president thrown out of office for incompetence, and ask obama why it is that he gets to go through his presidency with his head i nthe clouds, unaware of what’s goign on around him- and hten ask him how an out of touch president stacks up agaisnt the FACT that Bain did the firing and not him? Years after he left no less?

I really hope mitt hammers obama o nthe FACT that obama is absent durign his presidency and is mroe cocnerned abotu doing talk shows and palying and partying, than he is in runnign htis coutnry

Huckabee hit the nail on the head with his comment tonight- gthe media is beign SEVERELY derilect and is willing to help this president LIE to the american peopel in order to protect him- Newt then follwoede up said it was despicable of biden to LIE to the american peopel abotu what hte white house or didn’t know-

Hopefully Mitt can be as direct and blunt as newt and miek were tongiht! People NEED to wake up to the FACT that their president is MIA and has been for 4 years and that the msm has been coverign up ghis incompetence and even helping him to lie to us!

If Mitt can express his willingness to work with the people’s representatives to get things done as well as spread American ideals across the planet he will pull in the rest of the independents.

Obama can’t get nothing done and everyone knows it.

Ya gotta love the fact they are calling Romney a “salesman”... I’m sure all the sales folks out there appreciate that.

So simple to counter. Romney lists all the successful companies and the number of people they employ and how he helped found or save them, and then lists all of the green companies that went bankrupt after Obama funded them.

“Mr. President, I have an established record of picking successful companies, and you have a record of picking losers.”

End of Bain attack.

Howdy Doody aka Obabaa, should do very well against Romney if his ventrilogist can feed Obabaa his lines via hidden mechanism of some sort.

But Obabaa on his own? Probably do as well as he did in “Harvard” or whatever the school he may or may not have attended physically if not mentally.

Axelrod needs to be thoroughly vetted as to his family background and family name change and family roots going back to Russian bolshevik days. Someone was telling communists in Russia in the 1980s that a fellow named Obama of a white mother was being groomed to be POTUSA. What bothers me very much about all this unknown stuff about Obama is that so many persons, 47%?, are willing to sell our Founders’ Constitutional government for the proverbial pieces of welfare silver.

I would not be surprised if this is put out so Romney will spend time preparing and then it not brought up.

Trying to make him spend time preparing for stuff that will not be a part of it.

Romney needs to prepare like last time and what ever comes up handle it and he will be just fine.

My two cents

Nah, no need to needlessly inflame. It would be better to ask Obama if he believes that the 10 Commandments are still applicable, such as, bearing false witness, or that one about coveting, or stealing, or murder.

Besides, They declared war on us, opening themselves up to counter attack, including derision and mockery. Inflame on.

This is a no-brainer.. Romney counters with Solyndra. That in and of itself would’ve landed Nixon not only impeached, but prosecuted and imprisoned. The details of Solyndra ALONE would shut 0bama down.. If Crowley would let Romney finish explaining it, that is.

.

Yes, there are mountains of dirt of Omuslim.

.
Just the tip of the iceberg:

Obama’s books:

In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via Obama’s racist books would have knocked him out of the running for president of the United States.(they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)

From Dreams from My Father,“ I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER’S RACE”. Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from my Father’,“The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART.” Barack Hussein Obama

From Dreams from My Father:“THAT HATE HADN’T GONE” he wrote, BLAMING “WHITE PEOPLE — some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from My Father’,“There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote.“It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names” Barack Hussein Obama

“Dreams From My Father,” page 101 (paperback, ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3)
Dreams From My Father: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists“Dreams From My Father,” pages 99-100

Then there is his love of Islam:

Quote from Barack Obama’s book, Dreams Of My Father:
“THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM”.

From ‘Dreams of my Father’,“IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL”“..I STUDIED THE KORAN..”

From ‘Audacity of Hope:“LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope,“I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..”
.
From The Audacity Of Hope,“WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”
__________
Don’t believe it? Think these comments taken ‘out of context’? Here it all here in his own works;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6zM5ldO35A

Still need convincing?
Race: http://theobamafile.com/obamarace.htm
Islam — early years: http://www.theobamafile.com/_Islam/ObamaIslamEarlyYears.htm
Islam — candidate: http://theobamafile.com/_Islam/ObamaIslamCandidate.htm

The average American hasn’t a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes while he plans to slash the military, STOLE 716 BILLION FROM MEDICARE and threatened towithold senior’s social security checks!

BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!

Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/1 ...
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

$3.6 BILLION, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces
$400 MILLION, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

AFGHANISTAN:$1.52 BILLION,$86 MILLION above the request

WEST BANK AND GAZA:$665 MILLION in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

JORDAN:$250 million,$250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

EGYPT:$360 MILLION,$310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance,$50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

PAKISTAN:$1.9 billion,$591 million above the request

IRAQ:$968 MILLION,$336 million above the request
Oversight:$20 million,$13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

Lebanon:$74 million

International Food Assistance:$500 MILLION,$200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

REFUGEE ASSISTANCE:$343 MILLION,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

Disaster Assistance:$200 MILLION to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

Peacekeeping:$837 MILLION FOR UNITED NATIONS peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system

Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/ ...#
ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.

http://exchanges.state.gov/media/pdfs/office -...
And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!
http://gbk.eads.usaidallnet.gov/
They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

Have you read this? Now I can give this no credibility, but someone posted this on FR last week. IF this is true, then it tells a story about this unknown video and why Obama advertised it like he did. Doesn't the world think the film maker is a Coptic Christian... well what if he is NOT?

Remember when Algore and Bush were debating, and Lurch, no doubt at the bidding of his owners, walked out into the middle of the stage, trying to look all "alpha male" while Bush was talking?

Bush was supposed be thrown off or rendered mute or something. Bush simply glanced at him, nodded, and finished his thought. Suddenly Gore was stuck out there, like a guy peeing in an empty parking lot, who had been hit by headlights with his schvanzstucker in his hand.

I will be looking for a similar moment on Tuesday. Obama isn't intelligent enough to reject some goofing theater by his "Masters." Dims aren't nearly as bright as they think they are.

Word has it, though, that Candy Crowley sees this as her chance to join the Pulitzer Pantheon with her "hard hitting" monopoly of the Townhall forum. She figures, apparently, if she can skewer Romney and pitch softballs to her God, she can get a million an episode from whatever network is smart enough to hire her.
